Lens travel to the Groupama Stadium this weekend to face a Lyon side who have been underperforming in the league this season. Lens have been on fine form during their first 11 games of the campaign, having won six, drawn three, and lost two, and currently sit second in the table with 21 points.
However, they remain seven points behind leaders PSG, who look to be running away with the league this year after being pipped to the top spot by Lille last season. Lyon are currently ninth in the league, five points behind Lens.
However, Lyon have won three out of their last four matches against their weekend opponent, with their most recent match in April ended in a 1-1 draw. Lens will be going into the match with confidence having defeated Metz 4-1 last week. Meanwhile, Lyon lost 3-2 away to Nice after Zimbabwean forward Tino Kadewere was sent off, leaving Nice to take advantage of the extra man and scoring twice in the last few minutes of the game.
